    From nbcnews.com.

    An Alaska Airlines flight from LAX to Seattle diverted to Portland after the Captain became ill and passed out at the controls.

    Local radio morning show had this in their news report this morning. They ended it with "the plane was actually landed by the co-pilot." I don't think they realized that that is the case on roughly 50% of all flights.
